ALLEN, Texas, 12 Aug. 2015. Fairview Microwave Inc. in Allen, Texas, is introducing a family of coaxial high-reliability power RF amplifiers for applications in electronic warfare (EW), avionics, radar, test and measurement, and satellite communications (SATCOM).
The RF and microwave amplifiers have broadband frequencies ranging from 0.5 MHz to 20 GHz, and can operate in temperatures from -55 to 85 degrees Celsius. The devices are designed to overcome the electrical and mechanical stresses that are seen with exposure to harsh environments.
These RF amplifiers are packaged to withstand vibration and shock exposure during handling and transport. Several models in this offering are designed to meet MIL-STD-202 and MIL-STD-810 environmental test conditions, while some amplifier designs are environmentally screened in production to MIL-STD-202 test conditions.
Some models feature integrated heat sink and cooling fans for improved thermal dissipation performance resulting in extended operating life. Some models have hermetically sealed coaxial packages.
Fairview's high reliability power amplifiers can generate saturated output power levels (Psat) to 100 Watts and require only one positive voltage supply ranging from 12 to 42 volts DC. Signal gain levels range from 11 dB to 58 dB with IP3 linearity to 66 dBm.
